Avondale’s Most Valuable Mayor

I’ve had my fair share of celebrities step into the lens – it’s a fully accepted hazard of the gig! But when the celebrity status takes on a more local vibe … well that’s the best kind.

The Elmore family of five are my neighbors in Avondale Estates. As someone who is a super supporter of getting everyone involved in our community, I love what this family’s dad brings to the table … or in this case, the park bench in our backyard studio at Life On Film. (And let’s not forget mom…. who keeps everyone in line.)

That smiling face reigning in his three enthusiastic and spirited kiddos with his wife, Tamera, is Jonathan Elmore, none other than our esteemed mayor of Avondale Estates. Re-elected earlier this year, he has jumped into bringing positive and proactive ideas to the city’s commission. But that positivity spans beyond his professional gig. The personalities I got to document – boy, this family has some of the most energetic spirit around!
